American Idol 15 Recap – Final Performances and Results

First up was the winners single, “Battles,” written by Big Machine Label Group artist, Who is Fancy. I like this song for La’Porsha because it’s a big powerful song, but also very current sounding. It’s how I imagine she’ll go forth as a real world arist. – Download from iTunesDownload from Amazon

The second number was picked by American Idol creator, Simon Fuller. “A House is Not a Home” by Dionne Warwick is one of the great songs out of the Bacharach/David catalog. The duo’s songs are HARD to sing. The melody and rhythms can be tricky, but La’Porsha navigates the song effortlessly. A rare display of her head voice was lovely and perfectly timed.

The last performance was a reprise of “Diamonds” by Rihanna. Probably my favorite of all La’Porsha’s performances over the season. I’m glad she brought it back. It’s another emotional, stately but passionate rendition. She brings a deeper meaning to the lyrics than Rihanna ever did. A perfect end to an incredible night of performances.
